shooting live performance with XL1/XL2 + P&S
Posted 11 August 2006 - 03:50 AM
The event itself is to take place in the Brisbane Powerhouse theatre stage and i wish to use about 3-4 cameras to cover 2 nights - 1 camera on crane, 1 on steadicam and 2 on the seats across the stage filming this 25 piece band.
Any info would be awesome! Cheers.
PS. here is the link to my previous post that explains the actual event to a bit more detail:

thanks for the post. I guess that is the kind of advice that i was really after, seeing what people that have done a live event would do it on. my initial thoughts went to digi beta's but in attempting to keep the budet down we thought we consider the mini 35 which i never worked before... i knew lights would be a factor, but i have no idea how much more light it may be required to operate them properly...
thanks for the input mate,

I did a DigiBeta shoot down under and it was very reasonable compared to the states. If you are doing 16:9 I would try to get some SDX900s, they are really great SD cameras and the post with DVCpro is still pretty easy...
Thanks for the advice Ash, i will definitely look into the pricing of the SDX900s! I hope we can afford to get enough to utalise both the steadicam and the crane i might be able to get for the couple of nigts.
